    You shouldn't bisect blindly.

    Looking at the series file


    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch is a fix against
    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch, so if the bisection
    lands you on megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch then
    obviously one should apply
    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch by hand as well.

    You'll often find great streams of similarly-named contiguous patches - you
    should apply either all of them or none of them. Otherwise you're testing
    a known-to-be-broken kernel which has an already-available fix ;)
    describes the bisection technique I use.

    If you're using git-bisect, well, try to have a nice day anyway.

    Would be great, thanks.
